Nolan is an Irish name originating from the transferred use of a surname (O Nualláin) meaning a descendant of Nuallán. The "null" in Gaelic means "chariot, the champion". The surname is also sometimes loosely translated as "The descendant of the town crier". And we're not talking about cry babies. The etymology “crier” derives from the first chief of the Ó Nualláin clan who held the hereditary office of herald to the Kings of Leinster (a province in the east of Ireland). A herald was a messenger sent by monarchs to communicate important proclamations throughout the country; therefore the "crier", means. Curiously, the name Nolan is not on the Top 100 list of most-used names in Ireland (or anywhere in the UK for that matter). It's more unlike North America right now, sitting in the Top 100 of most favorite boy's names lists in Canada and the United States. However, Nolan is more popular per capita in France and is in the Top 100 in Belgium, too. There is a broader cultural appreciation of the name of this curiously Irish boy beyond Erin's borders.
